Polymers of a new type with an unusual combination of properties have been synthesized. They are of high molecular weight, they are soluble in organic solvents, and they can be cast as films. Their electrical conduction is electronic in the solid state and can be controlled up to a conductivity of 10-2 ohm-1 cm-1.
